Hospital discharge services

Hospital Management

Country of origin: UK

Ensuring the homes of people leaving hospital are adapted to their needs and in a fit state for them to live in is essential if the policy objectives of better hospital discharge and improved health are to be achieved. On the Mend: Hospital Discharge Services and the Role of Home Improvement Agencies, a report from Care and Repair, demonstrates the valuable role that housing related hospital discharge services can play in enabling people to leave hospital faster and live in their own homes for as long as possible.

Copies of the report are available in PDF format.
